Since arriving in Papeete to do some boat projects, we found ourselves “reinventing the wheel” - asking the same questions hundreds of others have asked - in trying to track down parts, services, doctors, dentists, etc.
We have often said we wished there were a Cruiser’s Guide to Tahiti and French Polynesia modeled after the valuable Panama City Cruisers Guide put together by Debi Shaimas on SV Serenity.
So we started compiling this one and what we have so far is now available online and downloadable as a pdf.

Propeller & Shaft Repair

Propellers Shaft

I was told they must be shipped in,  Ocean 2000 has stock of shafts with machined end to european standards (ISO25??)  Poly Industries made spare shaft but did not stock the material which came from Ocean 2000.  Sourced flexible coupling from Sopoc.  Small machine shop in Tipaerui put proper taper on old propeller; they are at the corner where you make the last turn going to Polybois (see wood)
